This early documentary on Leonard Cohen is quite interesting to watch today because it takes a look at the now legendary musician before he was a musician. The documentary basically captures Cohen as a poet and we get to see his stand-up act, which is a little better than you might expect as well as several other moments where he just rambles about various thoughts he has.
I'm not going to call this film a masterpiece because it's certainly not but at the same time it's a fairly fascinating look at Cohen that fans of his will probably love. I thought the film was certainly influenced by DON'T LOOK BACK but it doesn't have the same great filmmaking that the Dylan documentary did. With that said, there's no question that Cohen manages to grab your attention and hold it throughout the short 45-minute running time.
